Greetings, friends of Roscoe Elliott,
It is with a heavy heart that the family of R.G. "Roscoe" Elliott bears the news of his passing on the afternoon of December 5, 2016. He had been in the hospital for just a few days with relatively minor issues, when things quickly became more serious, with no practical remedy. He died peacefully surrounded by his family.
It is an awkward situation trying to notify all of his email friends in a timely fashion, and we deeply apologize if this message has reached you in error. Unfortunately, his email contact list doesn't distinguish between good friends and possible bill collectors. One of the highlights of his day was reading emails from his friends.
We will have a small funeral on Thursday, the 8th, at 12:30 p.m. at Bluebonnet Hills Funeral Home, 5725 Colleyville Boulevard, in Colleyville, TX. Any who wish to attend are welcome.
Barbie Adair and Donna Mowdy, daughters
